Leaves in the Fall – Encased in Ice

It’s fall here in Alberta. Sunny days, temperatures well above freezing – until a few days ago. We woke that morning and greeted our first snow day. Over the next few days we had more snow, some melting, a misty rain that was almost snow and another freezing night.  The next morning it was sunny – perfect weather for exploring a garden full of ice sculptures!

I’m assuming it was slightly windy when the freezing was taking place, because the majority of ice was on one side of these upright grass stems.

The freezing pattern was the same on these leaves.

The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?

Do you have sudden changes of weather where you live?
